Building on a unique background in history and theatre arts, her company has focused on bringing previously unknown and unsung history to life. For example, her play, "All for the Union...", weaves together the true stories of the Quaker women ran an Underground Railroad, the lives of Virginia slaves, and the history of the only Union troop to form within Confederate Loudoun County, VA.
For this play and other work Meredith was honored in the 2010 “Women with Vision” exhibit at Franklin Park Performing Arts Center, and is a recipient of The Thomas Balch Library Loudoun History Award and a League of Women Voters' award for "Advancing the awareness of Women's history."
